The Sparky Project

Nelson Santos, artist in New York and assistant director of Visual AIDS has a wonderful project with his dog Sparky and himself.
This is what he writes about it:
The Sparky Project is an art collaboration between Nelson Santos, his dog Sparky and various artists. The aim of The Sparky Project is to collect 101 portraits of Sparky and/or Nelson and Sparky. Participating artists become Lifetime Members of the Sparky Fan Club and their artwork becomes part of the permanent collection of the Sparky Museum.

Many great artists are already part of the project, one of them is Richard Renaldi and this is his contribution:

Nelson is looking for artists who are interested in this project.
This is his call to artists:
Sparky and Nelson are looking for artists to participate in The Sparky Project. To participate, the artist is asked to create an artwork involving Sparky and/or Nelson and Sparky. Artwork is open to all mediums; photography, painting, drawing, sculpture, video, etc. Theme songs, musical jingles and quick-witted limericks are also encouraged. For inspiration or to view images of Sparky, click on the Sparky link above. To see example of complete portraits click on Artworks. For further information or to set up an appointment with Sparky, please send us an email.

White Wall Collective

There's a fantastic Detroit based blog "White Wall Collective" I've been featured on it today. You can check it out here

This is what this great blog is about: White Wall Collective, WWC, is a Detroit-based photography collective focused on the encouragement, support and nurturing of photographic talent. Recognizing a disconnect between opportunites to showcase work and the photographers, the WWC aims to unite people both in Detroit and outside of the city. Forming strong support systems, networks and a place to showcase photographs, the WWC offers a central system to present critique, information and passion for art. By keeping updated information on contests, openings and shows and other such opportunities, we can form a greatly connected group of photographers that encourage an awareness of the arts community within Detroit.
